Angiotensin-(1-7) reduces smooth muscle growth after vascular injury.


Regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell growth is critical to the maintenance of normal blood flow and vessel patency. Angiotensin-(1-7) [Ang-(1-7)] inhibits proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells in vitro and opposes the mitogenic effects of angiotensin II. The present study investigated whether Ang-(1-7) inhibits vascular smooth muscle cell… (More)
